So this morning when I saw the teaser of an accident on Route 29 on Malvern Patch, I thought “uhh ohh”.
And it wasn’t just uhh ohh, it’s a fatality.
There are so many cool roads in Chester County, but a lot are windy and narrow. I have noticed when doing these Phoenixville jaunts that drivers become impatient when you actually try to do the speed limit. And a lot of people have a hard time staying on their sides of windy roads at times.
Here’s what Malvern Patch and state police are saying thus far and stay tuned to Malvern Patch for updates:
Pennsylvania State Police are investigating a fatal two-vehicle accident that occurred on Route 29 just north of the turnpike in Charlestown Township around 7 a.m. Wednesday.
The driver of a black Ford Explorer was killed in the crash. Police are withholding the identity of the deceased, pending next-of-kin notification.
The other vehicle involved in the crash was a PennDOT “crew cab,” a heavy-duty pickup truck. The three passengers in the PennDOT truck have been taken to Paoli Hospital with unspecified, non-life-threatening injuries.
The SUV was headed south and the PennDOT truck was headed north when the crash occurred, according to Cpl. Weid of the PSP.
